First – that Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream?
Delicious, creamy, and spicy – and really good with my last pumpkin spice truffle on top ;)
I think this is why I don’t buy ice cream very often. The gingersnap ice cream is already gone (Nick didn’t eat any of it) and now I’ve already broken into this one. It’s like once I open it up, I can’t stop!
Are you happy it’s Friday? I am.
I actually have a meeting today from 9-11, so I knew I needed a good breakfast to get me through it.
Finally just an entire chocolate bar slathered in peanut butter? I’ll tuck that idea away for another time.
I actually had a hard time coming up with what I wanted, which was kind of sad since my only real choice was oatmeal. I used the last of our eggs yesterday, so oatmeal is it.
I made more pumpkin oatmeal, but just kept thinking I should have saved that truffle for this morning!!! I guess oatmeal can only be so decadent, right?
This morning’s mix was:
- 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1/4 cup pumpkin
- TJ’s nuts over raspberries trail mix
I got the funniest note from my little sister yesterday, and I wanted to share.
Remember that she and her husband are in Spain? We’re keeping in touch, mainly through Facebook/email, and this message just cracked me up when it showed up in my inbox.
“Hey, James and I went to Mulligan’s (an Irish pub in Spain, go figure) this afternoon to get coffee, and they were playing Mika! So, naturally I thought of you. I miss you!”
I guess I made her listen to our Mika cd a lot :) It’s great, if you haven’t heard it; he sounds amazingly like Freddie Mercury from Queen.
I loved the note because they’re in Spain, but going to an Irish Pub…and that Mika made her think of me! I miss you too Tiff!
I realize she’s one of my sisters and she knows a lot about me, but I have things like this happen all the time. I’ll see something or hear something and automatically think of a family member, one of my friends, or someone I’ve known in my life.
And I love finding out what people know me for, what things remind them of me. I love it even more so when it’s something totally random like hearing music in a pub in another country.
That note made my day.
What are you known for? Anything?
Are there things that people say to you a lot or things that people give you or send you because it reminds them of you?
P.S: If you’re reading, Dad, I miss you! I hope you’re having a great trip!
